AMAZING!!! These "critic" reviews....what a joke!! They either didn't bother to watch it and are parroting more rhetoric which is all I seem to get from those in support of our current administration....but more likely they went into it with a keen eye for ANYthing they could try to hate, to smear, to pick apart. They went in wanting to hate it. As I've read one comment by an actual "moviegoer" (you know, the ones who drive the funds to Hollywood and provide these critics with their livelihood) "to not like this movie is to not like America". I agree! To come out of this movie thinking negatively and picking apart the film making and recreations- you have willingly completely missed the point. These ARE facts- I can't find one thus far that is inaccurate! Mr. D'Souza did a wonderful job at laying out our sins as a nation and then showing (through history) how we righted those wrongs to the best of our abilities. Never did he dismiss things like slavery as I read in one "critic"s review...Not once. He wholeheartedly admitted the atrocity and merely pointed out the fact that it was not a new practice invented by Americans...and points out that we are the first nation to fight a war to end it's practice...to right the wrong. I tell you if you have children, one important thing I did take away is that I would without fail research their texts. Don't assume they are factual and non-biased revisionist "history". It scares me the professors that are hired to teach and mold and impress our children. Scary. If YOU don't educate yourself to watch for those who seek to teach them incorrectly, then who will? We will have yet another generation of children taught to hate this nation...to feel shame where once there was pride and love. Frankly, the recreations left me with a heart swell of pride and thankfulness for what my forefathers endured to build this "One Nation Under God!" I pray one day this will be a nation where kids don't laugh at those who put their hands over their hearts when the national anthem is played....that listen to the words instead of only thinking about whatever massively overpaid athlete is about to take the field...that they would feel that surge of patriotism and understand the sacrifices that have been made by SO many to give them the right to even be able to care so much about that athlete! Maybe we'd get back to revering the service based individuals that this country could not exist without.
